The Hannibal of the ant world, known as Solenopsis Invicta or the Red Imported Fire Ant is sweeping across the world, leaving a trail of destruction from Latin America to the United States and Asia. In 2003 they invaded Taiwan. This is the story of the island’s battle against a deadly pest, capable of killing a person with a single bite. Equipped with incredible attack systems, breeding and survival skills, the “ant from hell” conducts a reign of terror island-wide. Scientists and pest controllers race against time in a desperate bid to stem the tide of an unstoppable invasion.
